Mauricio Pochettino the newly appointed Chelsea boss has broken his silence on Mason Mount‘s transfer to Manchester United, stating that he is unaware of the reasons behind the midfielder’s departure from Stamford Bridge.

Mount’s move to Old Trafford was completed earlier this week, marking the end of his 18-year association with Chelsea.

Despite the Blues’ intention to offload several players this summer, Mason Mount was considered a player they were determined to retain, given his significant contributions in recent seasons.
